Please help, what to do?

I have the opportunity to buy 19x8 Konig Opal Rims for around $800, which is about the same price I can get 18x7.5's from a different source.

My car doesn't have a kit, but would I be stupid to pass this deal up? Should I just settle on 18's?

Get the 19's they will look a lot better if you dont have a drop. W/ a 18" there will be too much of a fender gap & its cheeper to up grade springs than new rims thumbsup

I have a 1.1 in drop and there are others on the site w/ a sportline drop with 19's, I have no problems at all but the others w/ the 2 in drop have to take it easy but its well worth it i think. But in the end its up to you, looks or a nice ride or Vise Versa
